Not only did I have to say goodbye to my family at the end of that vacation, I had to endure a 70+ degree drop in weather.
But was that the worst of it? Oh no. The BEST part of returning home was when the shuttle driver from the airport had to throw my bags and ME over the fence since the door was buried shut under the fresh foot of snow. Yep. It's so good to be back.
Thank goodness I have pictures from Dubai to remember what 60-70 degree weather feels like, and what my outfits look like without having to wear a full down jacket over them.
NOTE: Dubai is a pretty conservative city, but not as conservative as the rest of the United Arab Emirates since it's a tourist city. But I still wanted to respect the conservative culture in Dubai and I wrapped a scarf around my shoulders when walking in public in this dress. These photos are from our Marriott hotel room balcony & a public beach where conservative dress is not enforced.

So thankful for this family vacation! Dubai was just a random idea my dad came up with as we were brainstorming places and it became the most amazing reality. Nothing better than experiencing new adventures with the people I love most and we could not have chosen a more opportune time to visit. Who knew we'd get to experience the World Record breaking fireworks display? Amazing!
